According to the researchers of Mars, Deep groundwater could still be active on the planet and be the origin of surface streams in some near equatorial areas of the Red Planet.
Researcher of University of Southern California have suggested that groundwater likely exists in a broader geographical area than just the poles of the Red Planet and there could be an active system on the Red Planet as deep as 750 meters, from which the ground water comes to the surface through cracks in the specific craters.
